Rare opportunity to live in a storybook, picturesque, impeccably restored 1924 Meadowood Dairy Farm "North Cottage" listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This home exudes charm of a bygone era that is completely move-in ready thanks to the current owners' 2014-2019 masterful renovation, which includes all the bells and whistles to exceed expectations of today's discerning buyers INCLUDING potential to add on! Originally built in 1924 from the vision of Clifford Milton Leonard after visiting a Dairy Farm in the French Countryside of Normandy and designed by renowned architect Ralph Varney. This picture-perfect, sun drenched Cottage, initially built for the farm staff, is part of an enclave of authentic buildings that make up the enchanting Hathaway Circle. Everything in this Cottage has been either restored or replaced including all new distressed hickory wood flooring throughout. Impressive reclaimed wood beams. All new immaculate white kitchen including new cabinetry, quartzite counters, Carrara marble subway backsplash, copper farm sink, wine cooler and all stainless-steel appliances and built-in desk. Restored wood Dutch door separates the lovely screened porch from the stunning living room with built-ins and gas stone fireplace. Cozy dining room with Vermont Stove gas fireplace. Three bedrooms up with lots of storage space and luxurious Carrara marble bath including heated floors. Walkout basement has newly installed porcelain tile flooring, laundry room and many built-in storage cabinets. Cobblestone driveway, 2 car detached heated garage, stone patio and very private, lush professionally landscaped half acre parcel with spectacular gardens in keeping with the original Jens Jensen landscape. Absolutely NOTHING to do. A precious jewel not to be missed! Complete list of all improvements available along with letter from the City of Lake Forest being "Open to working with buyer on changes to the existing house if proposed." Beautiful, established neighborhood supports significantly higher prices! Located just a short walk to expansive Open Lands, Elawa Farm, and walking and biking trails of Middlefork Savannah.
